Remington Core-Lokt Tipped Rifle Ammunition
Big Green’s longtime-favorite hunting bullet now has a polymer tip—and a new generation of hunters everywhere is set to reap the benefits.
Handloads: Hunting With The .375 Winchester
Although it is often difficult to find components for reloading the .375 Winchester cartridge, this lever-action round is deserving of customization for hunting in today's game fields.
Throwing Copper: Hornady’s CX
Hornady engineers set out to increase the GMX’s ballistic coefficient (BC) to extend the useful reach of the bullet. The result was the CX bullet (Copper alloy eXpanding).
Handloads: A .338 Win. Mag. For Elk
Arguments never end about which cartridges are adequate for the hunting of elk. Nobody has ever said, however, that a bullet fired from a .338 Win. Mag. lacks enough power for that task.
Loading Bench: Rifle Loads For The .44 Remington Magnum
The variety of available bullet weights and styles make the .44 Mag. a versatile cartridge, and a rifle with a relatively fast rifling twist can accurately fire all of them. Read on:
Loading Bench: The Do-It-All .30-30 Winchester
Is it the rifles chambered for it or is it the cartridge itself that keeps the .30-30 Win. an enduring favorite of American shooters and hunters?

Handloads: 16 Gauge Spreader Load
Not that long ago, sporting goods store shelves contained an adequate selection of 16-ga. shells. The last few years, however, barely a box of any 16-ga. shells can be found anywhere. But that’s of little concern to those with a shotshell-reloading press, such as the MEC 600 Jr., close at hand.

It was a pipsqueak when introduced in 2002, but Hornady’s inventive .17-cal. rimfire quickly grew in stature in the hearts of varmint hunters, plinkers and target shooters alike. Now, two decades on, the .17 HMR stands among the all-time giants of the rimfire realm.
Loading Bench: 6.5x55 mm Swedish
The 6.5x55 mm Swedish is an age-old cartridge, drafted for military duty by Sweden and Norway in 1894.
